Ginkgo is also known as the maidenhair tree. It is a living fossil with no known relatives. It is one of the best-selling herbal products in the World.
Ginkgo leaves have been shown to naturally contain two types of substances; terpenoids and flavonoids.
Flavonoids are plant-based antioxidants. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that flavonoids can protect the nerves, heart muscle, blood vessels, and retina from damage. Terpenoids (such as ginkgolides) improve blood flow by dilating blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of platelets.
*Ginkgo Biloba extract was found to stabilize or improve several measures of cognitive function and social functioning in older people.
